Description: GNOME Screensaver Slideshow of English irregular verbs

Comment 1 Bruce Cowan 2010-07-03 12:59:16 UTC
Here's an informal review:

The spec's layout is rather messy, it should conform to the template.

The Release should contain %{dist}

The BuildRoot tag is no longer required

rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT is not required in %install any more

%clean is no longer required

There is no changelog

Comment 2 Serguei Shimansky 2010-07-03 13:19:12 UTC
Thank you, Bruce -- will reconsider all notes

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2010-11-19 15:06:53 UTC
Was there ever any response to the commentary?

I think this is a good idea for a package, but honestly, isn't there a better way to do it than by having a bunch of images?  Perhaps take a few backgrounds and have the screensaver itself print the text on them?  You could take the various words and translations from a text file, and it wouldn't even have to be language-specific.

Comment 4 Serguei Shimansky 2010-11-19 16:01:09 UTC
Oh yes. Might be released using XML. Thanks for the hint. Will have to think this over.

Comment 5 Mario Blättermann 2012-10-20 21:34:17 UTC
As far as I can see, the current gnome-screensaver won't work with your package. It would be applicable for EPEL 5/6 only. Is it intended to go into these branches? Or are you actually still interested to keep this review request alive?

Comment 6 Miroslav Suchý 2015-08-21 09:12:48 UTC
No response for years. Closing. Feel free to reopen if you want to continue.
